As the Fourth of July holiday approaches we all enjoy the celebration of independence with cookouts and family gatherings to watch fireworks. I have a few ways to turn your cookout into an eco-friendly holiday tradition. 
1.    Eco-Friendly Fireworks - bright explosives may be beautiful, but very harmful to the environment. In order to continue the tradition, light fireworks from a single spot to make cleanup easier and dispose of any excess as soon as the show is over or choose to attend a city fireworks event to help prevent extra air pollution on that night. 
2.    Ditch plastic - Time to pull out the good china. Use real plates to control waste disposal.
3.    Go Vegan - instead of the typical burgers, try vegan burgers or organic popsicles for the kids.
